Richard (Nien Nunb) Bonhill passes away aged 67

It is with great sadness that Cult Faction must announce that Star Wars actor Richard Bonehill has died at the age of 67.


As well as appearing in a number of other films, Richard enjoyed fencing, and was the President of the Truro Fencing Club.

The club shared the sad news on their Twitter account, writing: “We are sad to announce the sudden passing of our President & former Head Coach Richard Bonehill. A great leader & an inspiration.


Richard starred as Sullustan smuggler Nien Nunb, who co-piloted the Millenium Falcon, in the two films, and he also played a stormtrooper, rebel soldier and a fighter pilot. His other credits include ‘Frenchman’s Creek’, ‘’Allo ‘Allo’ and ‘Call Me Mister’.
